It depends, if you have a cherry picker or a come a long then you can do it your self. You have to lift the engine, to replace this part. If not you will need to take it in. Now you can rent these things, but you will need the chilton or haines.

You have to remember that this is a front whealed engine and your trnasmision is right here also. Don't be afraid of the greas, just read and re-read then do.

When I put my 2000 Ford Taurus into reverse or drive it shuts off. But if I drop it into low it drives.


Sigh. The most likely answer is the MAF Boot (Air Mass Sensor) has a crack in it, AND, your motor mounts are worn out. When you put it in gear, there is a significant torquing of the engine, and it tends to try and "move" or twist to get the tired turning, but until you drive that isnt happening so the transmission clutch or torque converter eatst he rotation and allows it to idle. All find and well, HOWEVER, if your motor mounts are bad, then the initial twisting force when it goes into gear causes the engine to move enough that a crack in the MAF sensor will open, causing a massive air leak that tells the computer the wrong amount of intake air, it then sends the wrong amount of gas...engine only runs on right air and fuel. Engine stalls.

When putting in 1st gear, the lower gear coupled with quicker takeoff can sometymes prevent the initial stall and as the engine untorques when it moves back, the crack closes and returns to normal (ish)..
There could also be some electronic answers...but as its very common and easy/cheap to check, Id start there,.

How to chg alternator on 2002 ford taurus 24v dohc 3.0


ctionsThings You'll Need
  • Flywheel holding tool
  • New alternator
  • Socket wrench set
  • Torque wrench
    • 1Determine which alternator your Ford Taurus will need. You'll want to be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Taurus's engine. Models made from 1986 to 1991 have a 2.5 L HSC, 3.0 L Vulcan or 3.8 L engine. The 2.5 L engine was dropped for 1992 to 1995 models, and post-1995 models will have a 3.0 L engine.
    • 2Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Release the tension on the accessory drive belt so that you can remove the drive belt from the pulley.
    • 3Take off the mounting bolt on the right side of the alternator with a socket wrench and remove the bracket for the power steering hose. Remove the mounting bolts on top of the alternator, the front passenger wheel and tire assembly and the front fender splash shield. Remove the alternator splash shield with a socket wrench and take off the inspection cover for the torque converter.
    • 4Mount a tool to hold the flywheel so you can remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and crankshaft pulley. Lower the alternator so you can unplug its electrical connections. Disconnect the crankshaft position sensor and Oxygen sensor connector. Remove the lower alternator mounting bolt and B+ connector nut to remove the alternator.
    • 5Install the new alternator assembly by reversing the above procedure. Use a torque wrench to tighten the B+ connector nut to 71 in. lbs. and the lower alternator bolt to 18 foot pounds. Torque the crankshaft pulley bolt to 74. foot pounds, the upper alternator bolts to 18 foot pounds and the nut for the power steering hose bracket to 13 foot pounds.

Back 3 spark plugs on a Ford Taurus - do I have take manifold off to change them?


Yep, or pull the engine. Ever wonder why the 100,000 mile service is one thousand dollars. That is what happens when you stuff a large v-6 in to a four cylinder engine compartment.
Thanks,
